Initially, HTC started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in parts of Europe, including Nordic regions last week. The latest update will take the device to the Android 4.4.2 version. Thus, the smartphone will now have access to several KitKat features.
Other Asian countries have also started getting the KitKat update for the single SIM version. It should be noted that the update is only being received by the single SIM HTC One. it is not clear when the HTC One Dual SIM would get the KitKat update in India.
Among all the new features, the Cloud print service will be enabled in the device here on. The update also brings in some security enhancements and new Bluetooth profiles to support more media interactions will also be seen.
Moreover, improvements can be seen in the multi-tasking operations. The owners will also be able to open and save files on Google Drive with additional 25GB of storage and the memory management system has also been improved.
